They Invited Everybody…

…and everybody came.

I don’t know if the latter will hold true, but the former certainly is. Sophie’s entire class is invited to her birthday party tomorrow. No matter what she tells you.

Yesterday afternoon — after the local NPR commentary I did about her birthday was long in the can — my friend Vicki (mother of Anyssa, a classmate of Sophie’s) texted after school:

So, I talked to your daughter and asked her what she wanted for her birthday and she told me that I couldn’t go to her party and I asked her why? And she said because I was a boy! But it’s ok for Anyssa to go! But she gave me a kiss said bye!

Whoops. Someone clearly needed to have another talk with Sophie. In fact, I better go. I see that Ms. X just called.

    I just listened to your radio commentary. Tears are streaming down my face. That was beautiful. Thank you for sharing and may Sophie have the best birthday of all.

      Sorry! Ambrosia Parsley sings the song; it’s on “For the Kids Too,” a comp of indie musicians doing kid music.
